Pre-Christmas EBA Vote

January 11, 2017

Pipeline Drillers achieved a majority vote on Wednesday December 21, 2016, signing a new multi-year enterprise bargaining agreement.

The workplace agreement covers more than half of Pipeline Drillers’ valued employees, who secured an annual wage increase in line with CPI, in addition to a reassessment of all pay levels.


Effective as at December 22, 2016 and valid until December 31, 2018, the EBA encompasses a new equipment bonus structure and further improvement to downtime conditions.


This positive outcome reflects Pipeline Drillers strong employee relations which continue to benefit the business with high retention of an internationally recognised drilling workforce.
